Remote Students (who started the year this way)
If you are having technical difficulties...please contact us at school 558-2167 is the main office and we can try to help you. If we are not able to help, you can also contact our district help desk at 558-2900.
Learning Environment Changes
- If you would like to make a change to your child/children’s environment, please reach out to your child’s building principal. They will work with you on your request for change, whether it is from the remote to in-person environment or from in-person to remote. These requests need to be made by Wednesday, Dec. 16th, by 12:00 PM. This will allow us time to make needed changes and adjustments to our staffing before the holiday break.
Please reach out to me via phone or email. I will need to talk with you on the phone to complete the survey to make the change in learning environments. Thanks for your patience and flexibility.
